MAKEUP TRAVEL TRAIN CASE + TIP

I wanted to show you my new travel train case, plus a way to get more room out of it. I bought it at Stylesforless.com.
I got it for $10, but it's $13 online.  You could find this style anywhere though.

I liked the pattern & it has 2 Velcro straps you could put up to hold the mirror.  What I did is go to Big Lots/$1 store & bought these plastic containers & made a shelf to put myself more space.
In the top photo I have the plastic container full of  pencils,mascara, e/s... I also had room for my brush holder & I put in a Mac palette to show how much room you still have.  I could have put 2 more in.
This is what it looks like without the palette & plastic container. There is a bunch of room to put stuff on the bottom.
This pic shows the palette & how much room there is still. I put my single e/s. in the pocket.
Everything was organized & fit right in. I could actually get a flat shelf to put in between for more space.  I used to have a big plastic makeup case, but I was always having to dig around to find what I needed. This way I saw everything. 

Summer travel is here. What are your travel tips?

That zebra case is so cute. Even if I pack neatly and organize everything it's all a mess by the time I come home.
